Poetry. Second Printing. "In the past two decades, Robert Grenier's work has advanced word-art in a joyous, pacific and irresistable way: his words are inscribed on visible (and-invisible, i.e. interior) prayer-flags that flutter above and around the habitations of many surviving anarchically intelligent humans in this hemishpere (and, I guess, the other one, too). Come from the wind/breath, gone into the wind/breath, returning and emanating, in great precision, playfulness, and delighted integrity, The intelligence of joy, once again manifest in our poetry"--Anselm Hollo.
